Last year the London-based independent label Fuzz Club hosted a two-day festival in the Dutch city of Eindhoven which saw people travel from over 35 different countries to immerse themselves in a communal celebration of all things fuzz, reverb and drone. The label have been busy working on round two and are now sharing the first wave of artists set to play Fuzz Club Eindhoven 2019, taking place at the Effenaar over August 23rd-24th.
Topping the bill as it stands are Japanese mavericks Kikagaku Moyo who will be bringing their transcendental blend of minimalist psychedelia, Eastern folk and krautrock. Joining them will be Iceage and their twisted gothic post-punk, Night Beats, The KVB, Froth and many more.
Line-up Friday 23 August:
Acid Baby Jesus
Iguana Death Cult
Full line up Fuzz Club Eindhoven 2019: Kikagaku Moyo, Iceage, The KVB, Night Beats, Tess Parks, The Underground Youth, The Telescopes, Froth, Les Big Byrd, The Warlocks, Cosmonauts, The Vacant Lots, Lumerians, Rendez-Vous, Snapped Ankles, Whispering Sons, The Myrrors, Singapore Sling, Teeth Of The Sea, Acid Baby Jesus, Iguana Death Cult, RMFTM, Minami Deutsch, The Oscillation, 10 000 Russos, The Janitors, Dead Vibrations, JuJu, The Gluts, Medicine Boy, Vuelveteloca, Routine Death en Firefriend.
Overseeing the suitably-mind-altering stage visuals for the festival will be Liverpool-based multimedia artist Sam Wiehl (who has provided his glitched-out digital manipulations for the likes of Liverpool Psych Fest, Forest Swords, Ladytron, Jane Weaver and Actress) as well as the kaleidoscopic liquid light projections of Innerstrings (LPF, Gwenno, Kikagaku Moyo).
During the day on Saturday, there will be the premiere of "The Telescopes - Taste. A 30 Year Celebration" – a forthcoming documentary film looking back on ‘Taste’, the cult 1989 debut album from British noise-rock underdogs The Telescopes. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with Telescopes founder Stephen Lawrie and music journalist and DJ Dom Gourlay (Drowned In Sound, Under The Radar). To coincide with
